At this year's SCAA conference, our magazine will help to make history. Tea & Coffee Trade Journal, along with the New York Board of Trade (NYBOT) will be holding a live roundtable discussion webcast at the Spe­cialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Conference in Miami - the conference's first ever. By logging on to www.nybot.com, people around the world can witness our roundtable discussion, "Risk Management in the Millennium: Tools and Opportunities," broadcast live on Friday, April 20, 2001, starting at 10:45 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time).

So who would be interested in this seminar? Every segment of the in­dustry: growers, exporters, importers, brokers, and roasters. Discussing the many risk factors involved and how they deal with uncertainties during daily coffee trading will be: Oscar Schaps (moderator), Hencorp; Mark Fichtel, NYBOT; Henry Dunlop, Atlantic Coffee Co.; Christian Wolthers, Blasers & Wolthers, and Judy Gaines-Chase, InterCommerical Markets. The discussion is divided into three parts including, Part I: "What is Risk Man­agement?," Part II: "Risk Management Tools," and Part III: the Question and Answer Period.

During Part 1, the panelists will discuss what it means to exchange cash coffee and will identify possible repercussions of not practicing risk man­agement. In Part 11, there will be a review of methods of risk management, including new methods which are being practiced. Part III will be a ques­tion-and-answer period, during which live and virtual audience members will be able to participate.

In addition to the live broadcast, there will be an on-going question-and­-answer bulletin on the NYBOT, Tea & Coffee Trade journal, and Tea & Coffee Asia web sites.

So if you can't attend the SCAA Conference, you just need to log on for a small fee and start blasting questions out to our formidable group of cof­fee experts.

As commerce and media move further into this new electronic era, we're experimenting together with NYBOT. Our visions for the future involve bringing seminars and possibly entire symposiums to as many global industry members as possible.
